Heading into Week 17, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders needed eight catches to receive a $500,000 incentive in his contract for this season. He entered the night with 52 receptions and needed 60 for the incentive. The veteran wideout recorded his eighth reception on a nine-yard catch with 2:15 left in the third quarter.

Sanders is the Saints’ leading wide receiver with eight receptions (nine targets) for 57 yards and a touchdown. And he showed he was plenty happy to secure the bonus.
